Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Gilat's solutions for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) address the defense and military market's critical need to exploit the full capabilities of the aircraft’s operational range. As one of the industry's smallest and most compact aerial solutions in its category, Gilat's integrated approach can dramatically increase mission effectiveness. The system's miniscule dimensions allow beyond line of sight (BLoS) operations for even small UAS platforms, while supporting UAS video and data downlink and uplink applications.


Leveraging in-house satellite communications technologies has enabled Gilat to address customers’ critical need for reduced size and weight, while offering an affordable, tightly integrated solution with fast customization times. For example, the miniature, lightweight integrated terminal seen below has been specifically designed to provide high data-rate video download for small, tactical, long-endurance UASs.


Gilat offers a full range of SATCOM systems for Group 3, 4 and 5 UAS, operating in Ku-, Ka- and X- band, and available in different sizes and bit rates. Users can choose from the BlackRay 71, the BlackRay 71 Enhanced, and the BlackRay Parabolic.
